Darkest Knight (2003) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
I had no idea what to expect when I picked up a copy of “Darkest Knight,” but I’m a big fan of sci-fi and fantasy movies, so I thought I’d give it a look-see. It was apparent to me from the beginning that it was a TV series, and that this must be a couple of episodes cobbled together to form a feature-length DVD release. I wasn’t surprised to find out that it was a New Zealand production…it definitely had the look and feel of a “Xena” or “Hercules” clone, right down to the occasional tropical plant in what was supposed to be an English forest.
All in all, it’s really not that bad…well, okay, it’s that bad. The acting can be WAY over the top, and the special effects are pretty cheesy by most anybody’s standards. But that doesn’t stop it from being a completely enjoyable romp. It reminds me of Saturday morning TV shows I used to watch when I was a kid. Sometimes it’s fun to just kick back and watch the hero save the day, even if Sir Walter Scott is spinning in his grave right now.
So…skip “Darkest Knight” if you’re a purist, but if you want to spend a rainy afternoon with a good “bad” movie, you might actually enjoy this one.
